WELCOME

Dear friends and supporters, visitors of this site,

We are happy to announce the registration of the Association “EgLex”
by the State Ministry of Monaco on March 3, 2018. The association has an objective of promoting and defending human rights, reinforcement of solidarity and family values, facilitation of intercultural understanding in order to inspire social progress, welcoming and helping its members in multiple circumstances of their lives, their representation before the Government, the National Council and tribunals of Monaco, as well as internationally.

One of the initiatives promoting family values is the Petition for
recognition of free unions and civil partnerships in Monaco as
legitimate units of society, akin to marriage. We are meeting with the members of the National Council of Monaco since last December, and we are delighted to inform you that the bill recognising this form of family is currently under preparation, as been announced by the President of the Committee for Women's Rights and Family on the 8th of March, International Women's Day.

It is one of a number of ideas that we are backing in order to protect
family values and to defend our members from victimisation, economic harassment and domestic abuse.

The warm welcoming of the human rights defence association by the
Government of Monaco is a proof of its openness to public initiatives
in social betterment and individual responsibilities, starting from
our “own back yard”. It is important that our small Principality does
not remain aside from current pan-European social and legal
developments.

We thank all those, who already signed the Petition on this site and
would like to ask you to become members of “EgLex” Association. With your support in numbers, your minds, hearts and energy, we can act towards a constantly evolving fairer social order, where health of the family underpins the health of an individual and society.

We kindly invite you to leave your name, email and home address to
join our association!

  1. Hi, Eglex!

    This excellent article in the Guardan highlights the problem that “…a relationship is the biggest financial risk women take. Any woman embarking on a relationship should at least hear the facts and be aware of the risk she is adopting.”

    It states further «… a new report by the Chartered Insurance Institute (CII), “Risk, exposure and resilience to risk in Britain today”… emphasises that divorce and separation are a significant financial risk to women left “vulnerable” by joint decisions made while they were in a long-term relationship. The average divorced woman has less than a third of the pension wealth of the average divorced man, while 10% more divorced women expect to rely on the state pension than men, 41% of whom have an occupational pension. To compound this issue, women are more likely to have more caring responsibilities, and to suffer mental health problems.»

    “Following divorce, the financially stronger party – historically the man – can continue to earn at his full earning potential and top up his pension pot; meanwhile, the woman may have a reduced earning potential following years out of the employment market while she was building the home and bringing up children. And for women who are unmarried, there is no entitlement to a share in their former partner’s pension. Risk is inherent in relationships for women. While the gender pay gap between men and women in their 20s has closed, the gap opens and widens in later years – in quite a significant part because of women taking time out of employment to have families.”

    Keep up your work and research and good luck!🍀

  2. …with much respect and admiration for your work and person, from my heart and soul all my very best wishes go out to you and Elena for your important engagement in actively making a difference by setting that example as to inspire and move many others in raising the moral bar of consciousness regarding an issue of which our societies as a whole feed of and depend upon – women – bearers of life in such manifold diverse and blessed ways.-))) V!
